CREATE MEANINGFUL CHANGE ONE CONVERSATION AT A TIME
Conversations are at the heart of everything we do and are essential to effective communications, leadership, high performing teams, and strong relationships. We know that conversations influence us, but we rarely stop to think about how much they affect our well-being, the well-being of others, or the health of our organizations and communities. Learn how Conversations Worth Having can foster connection, spark innovation, strengthen relationships, and create meaningful engagement.
There are three bootcamps in the Conversations Worth Having(CWH) series, they are: Conversation Bootcamp, Strategic Conversations Bootcamp, and CWH Trainer Certification.
Communication remains the top issue for organizations, teams, and relationships. Most people struggle to effectively communicate when they are frustrated, angry, hurt, or facing conflict. The effects of poor communication are costly. This bootcamp will help you establish communication practices that will support productivity, engagement, high performance, regular feedback, positivity, and a culture of “we”.
